Volunteers at the SCHHS

Becoming a SCHHS volunteer

There are more than 350 active volunteers across Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS). Our volunteers are valued members of our team providing support and comfort to patients, visitors and staff.

The program has been created to be complementary to the care provided by the SCHHS staff and to foster and promote a supportive environment where the volunteers can engage, learn and build confidence. The volunteers are identified by either blue vests or and/or identification badges and support our organisation in many ways. You will see them when entering one of our facilities providing patients and their families with a familiar face, dedicated help and support during their health journey.


The volunteer program has been created to be complementary to the care provided by the SCHHS staff.  If you are interested in volunteering in a supportive environment, where you can engage, learn and build confidence, then you must have a current blue card.

When volunteer position are available, the Health Service will advertise via the Facebook page and Seek, an online job seeker platform.
